Announcement of the auction ArtSale.info No. 157. Mikhnov-Voitenko, Pyatnitsky, Yakovlev, Yankilevsky, Zverev, Voroshilov and others. February 8–14, 2023
“Here's to twenty years of no-exhibition work!” This was the toast to Evgeny Mikhnov-Voitenko in November 1976, after the exhibition of nonconformists at the Ordzhonikidze Culture Center. Colleagues understood that by objective, unbiased assessment they were drinking to the health of one of the main innovators of abstract art. But formally — yes, it was indeed the first exhibition of Mikhnov.
